Doctor yesterday

Here's the short and sweet of my doctor's appointment yesterday:
Eden's heart rate: low 140s (anything from 120-160 is good, so she's GREAT)
My measurement: about 1/2 a cm below where it "should" be, but anything give or take 2 cm from where it "should" be is ok
My weight: total gain from beginning 'till now is 20 pounds
Eden's positioning: Doc thinks she's head down, butt up (YAY) but of course, there are no guarantees because supposedly she can still flip

Here's the short and sweet of how I'm feeling:
I'm uncomfortable sometimes because Eden's butt (if the Doc is correct about her position) is right under my breastbone, which makes it REALLY hard to breathe sometimes. I'm getting used to it and it makes me sit up straight, which isn't a bad thing at all. Sleeping is harder and harder to do - I think I'm up to sleeping with 4 pillows in various positions now! Last night I couldn't fall asleep until 2 and then I woke up at 6, 7, 9, and stayed in bed until 11 because I can :) I'm SO ready for her to be in my arms now! We've taken the breast feeding class and the childbirth class and its made me really ready to be able to hold her...only 7 more weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
